Mariah Carey snoozes before show

Mariah Carey didn't get out of bed until 3pm today (17.03.16), despite having a gig almost 200 miles away tonight.

The 'Fantasy' hitmaker is currently in the UK on her 'Sweet, Sweet Fantasy' tour, and played the first leg in Glasgow, Scotland, on Tuesday (15.03.16), before travelling back to London ahead of this evening's performance in Leeds, North West England.

And the singer has been getting plenty of rest between shows as she admitted she "hates" having to get out of bed.

She posted on Twitter this afternoon: "My darling #Lambs! As much as I hate leaving this fabulous bed at the @CorinthiaLondon, I am on my way to see you all in Leeds in 30 mins! (sic)"

She later wrote: "#lambs on my way !! A few more hours !! #Leeds #UK (sic)"

While Mariah has been travelling up and down the UK to her shows - her first tour in Europe for 13 years - her fans have been coming in from further afield, with StubHub reporting supporters travelling from Spain, Germany and the Netherlands and even the US.

And British fans have also been happy to travel, with 30 per cent coming from London, 11 per cent Essex, eight per cent from Surrey and seven per cent from Kent.

The ticket retailer - who are the official ticket resale partner for The O2 - found Mariah is the number two selling artist on StubHub for the duration of her tour, with only Adele proving more popular, and she is beating out the likes of Ellie Goulding, Little Mix and The 1975.

While the current average price for her tickets is £128, tickets are still available from the site starting at £33.
